there are big differences about women's rights, big difference about the role of government in saving american -- that's my point. come back on me if i'm wrong. i don't think arguing about medicare dos and don'ts and what's in and what's out -- he'll always win that. you know why? he's willing to say anything, candidate, i was vice president of department of defense policy board. last year around this time i was down there in the combat zone let's watch. >> he is a pragmatic business person. he's a guy who likes to take apart a problem and figure out how to get it fixed. >> barack obama is a fascinating mixture of boldness and caution but then once he makes a decision, it's usually the bold one. >> mitt romney has been accused of flip-flopping, but on mormonism he will never flip-flop. >> and yet in politics he has often tried to keep that part of him behind the curtain. >> the backlash against his presidency must be mystifying to him because he genuinely doesn't see himself as a radical. >> well, with us right now is michael kirk producer of "frontline: the choice 2012." congratulations it wi
about women's rights, big difference about the role of government in saving american -- that's my point. come back on me if i'm wrong. i don't think arguing about medicare dos and don'ts and what's in and what's out -- he'll always win that. you know why? he's willing to say anything, romney, anything in a debate. how do you beat a guy who is willing to say anything, who knows it only matters when the camera is off. when he sends out a staffer to correct the record. nobody is watching. that's what he likes. >> i don't disagree with you about the auto industry as an issue. i don't disagree with you about women's rights as an issue and equal pay, about you you can't walk away from the medicare issue and you can't let romney say that he's the guy who is going to protect medicare when he's, in fact, going to turn it into voucher care. senior citizens, especially in states like florida, pennsylvania, you know this, ohio, are going to be a big part of this electorate. they want to understand what's happening there. because the president didn't respond on medicare in the debate with any force,
the government should make the call? >> there you go again, chris. >> i know. >>> the gallup tracking poll has now divided into two. >>> if look at the pollster trend line of -- you can see obama in the blue line really picked up. we all know that charlotte was good for the democrats, but romney started gain rapidly following that debate. what do you think about that, michael? how is it moving between now and 28 days from now? >> now, how the people digest that remains -- sugar high? how long does it last? >> whatever it was, obama should have had some of it. the poll, the tracking is beginning to reflect -- >> we're getting into the big issues tonight and for the coming two presidential debates. >> i think that joe biden is going to draw up big. everyone wants to know if everyone's going to do it. to some extent i think it will be like nascar. is he going to make a mistake? the democrats have argued that romney's claim during last week's debate, it's actually a plan to cut $5 billion in taxes, but he did it again tonight on cnn just a short time ago. the obama attacks are false, let's see wha
saw was a different approach to governance on display and a very different set of policies he was underscoring but not actually going off any of the policies he had espoused up to that night. >> i think you're right. what's been different was tone more than substance, style more than substance. i also think it's not a surprise that that's what he did at a debate that is not strictly for the republican audience. i think he's appealing to a broader group of voters. one of the things that romney has been very self-conscious about this entire general election is being called a flip-flopper. he was concerned about this in the primaries, but he has stuck with this on the issue of immigration until recently. he has actually had some positions that have modulated. he took a stand on obama's executive action about some temporary visas being issued and this was the first time he had commented on it in about 100 days and it was the day before the debate. he gave a little more meat on the bones the day before the debate about tax policy. but you're not seeing him change his stance and i t
, the government provides health care by putting you in an ambulance and taking you to the er to get treated. well, now he's saying people don't die because they lack insurance. he told the columbus dispatch editorial board, quote, we don't have a setting across this doesn't where if you don't have issues he say, tough luck, you're going to die when you have your heart attack. no, you go to the hospital, you get treated, you get care, and it's paid for, either by charity, the government or by the hospital. we don't have people that become ill, who die in their apartment because they don't have insurance. you go to the er. is that the republican health care plan? >> no, chris. >> michael steele. >> chris, why do you even bother to go there. he's giving an example that we are a caring people, that we do not leave people on the street to die. >> is that the republican health care plan? >> come on, chris. it's not. >> what is it? >> it's making sure that people have affordable access to health care costs across the board, bottom line. and the way -- >> that's not what he said. >> that's exactly what h
care question, also. if you want to see what happens and how a health plan that is a government-run health plan does not work, take a look at what happened when tennessee put ten care in place and that was going to be government-run, it was the test case for hillary clinton health care. and i have to tell you, we still had the same number of uninsured coming into our hospitals and seeking treatment. the thing is, chris, you don't have an example where government-run health care has increased access, lowered cost, and gotten more individuals into the health insurance rolls. >> i thought that that's what governor romney bragged about doing in massachusetts. >> i think that when you look at government-run health care, what you do not have is an example -- >> romney was wrong in massachusetts? so he was wrong in massachusetts? >> romney tried something that worked for massachusetts. he feels like letting the states solve the issue, and i agree with that, let the states take this up. just like with our medicaid. >> okay. so government-run doesn't mean government-run? >> on a bipartis
wanted to get at why was the government giving out information they now acknowledge was incorrect? the video you talked about was somehow the spark that set this off. there was a lot of friction about that during the committee hearing. and as you heard chairman issa say, there is apparently videotape the government has that shows that it was very calm there about an hour before the -- sort of the melee began. a lot of frustration about that. still a sense they're not getting all the answers they want. some of that is because there's an ongoing investigation, in fact, three of them. the people from the state department who were there to give testimony had some concern about stepping on the investigation. so, that's part of it. the other part is a real inquiry about what should the level of security be because two of the men who were at the witness table had been a part of security in libya, claimed they had made requests for additional support on the ground, based on things they were seeing there and that that had been denied. now it's a question of, were the right decisions made a
with governments and across the industry so we can all produce energy more safely. i want you to know, there's another commitment bp takes just as seriously: our commitment to america. bp supports nearly two-hundred-fifty thousand jobs in communities across the country. we hired three thousand people just last year. bp invests more in america than in any other country. in fact, over the last five years, no other energy company has invested more in the us than bp. we're working to fuel america for generations to come. today, our commitment to the gulf, and to america, has never been stronger. >>> hey, there. here's what is happening. the maker of the anti-islam film was in court earlier and committee denied lying to probation officers and using aliases. the u.s. anti--doping agency accuses lance armstrong of using performance enhancing drugs. and alex karras died at the age of 77. now back to "hardball." >>> welcome back to "hardball." well, there was some politically charged moments today on capitol hill as darrell issa looked into the attack in benghazi that killed christopher stevens and t
i think is he's governed by the loudest, strongest voices in his own party. he makes fear-based decisions in that sense, and given that, and given the extremes to which the republican party has come on every issue concerning women and their bodies, whether that's planned parenthood funding, shutting down the last remaining abortion clinic in certain parts of the country, or the basic right of a woman to choose, they have shanghaied this party on the fringes of the right. >> and he has yet to show any strength at any point in this campaign of standing up to the right when they put pressure on him. on the issue of abortion, the differences between the two tickets could not have been clearer or the stakes more evident. here is paul ryan on why he opposes a woman's right to choose. let's listen to the man himself. >> i believe that life begins at conception. that's why those are the reasons why i'm pro-life. now, i understand this is a difficult issue, and i respect people who don't agree with me on this, but the policy of a romney administration will be to oppose abortion wit
themselves about how he would govern. would he take the lead in bombing iran if the mullahs were getting to close or just back up the israelis one of his senior advises asked. would he push for peace with the palestinians or live with the status quo? he's left himself a lot of wiggle room. if they don't know, who does? >> steve clemons is editor-at-large and david corn has a new book out tomorrow. you broke that story. steve, i'm going to be pretty broad here and just start with my critique of romney. every time he speaks he lists more fronts he wants to get hotter and he wants to stay in longer whether it's afghanistan or iraq, he wants to go in deeper. should have gone in deeper on libya and syria. should be tougher on drawing a bright line earlier than anybody but the israelis in terms of the iranian nuclear threat. everything is go to war, go to war. name anyone in his family history going back or forward who has ever put on a military uniform. they have no intention of participating in all these wars in any way and yet he wants to fight it as an instinct. it doesn't square. you can'
